I play here with a senior's group on either Tuesday or Friday. Really nice bunch of golfers. Constantly trying to improve the course. In the process of repaving the cart paths this month. For a small, inexpensive, privately owned public course I feel it's a remarkable value. The greens are in remarkably good shape as we enter the winter season. Because of the slope, several are very challenging. For the money, $18 includes cart, it's really hard to beat.

Got held up on 6 - twosome in front of me said it was because there was a "sixsome" in front of them - saw it for my self and these folks thought they were playing the Masters. Reported to the clubhouse and he did a visual and did nothing about it - had to play the front 9 again. Without a ranger, this will always be allowed, and it's a shame because it is a good public course.

Greens need a little bit of work.

New ownership has invested time and money the last two seasons. The course is shaping up and is a good value. Small grees with some tricky slopes. Short course but woe to the golfer who strays.
